1st and 6th

Sorry, last week I took an unexpected mini vacation. We tried soak up as much as we could these last few day of summer.

Today is the first day of school. I am now the mom of a 1st grader and a 6th grader. Oh be still my mama heart.

I'm not nervous for R2 at all but R1 that's a whole other story. He's fine with it as a matter of fact he's more than fine. He knows all of the kids and knows his way around the Jr High and knows most of the teachers. But me I'm a nervous wreck. I've been trying hard not to let R1 see how nervous I am for him, I don't want my insecurities to rub off on him.

So last night as I put my boys to bed, I prayed over them for the up coming school year. And when I was done R1 thanked me. He said he was excited for the new school year and couldn't wait to see his friends. R2 said he couldn't wait to see his teacher and his best friend Jude!

And with that here is my 1st grader and my 6th grader...

Prayer is the best thing for a nervous heart! I've been doing a lot of praying for my kids (and myself) for this new school year.

I'm sure they will both have a great year!

They grow up so fast, don't they?! Mine started 5th & 7th today. I cried at Moms in Touch! I didn't think I would cry this year, but whatev.
